Amazing Brownies

I've been busy playing pageant mom so I haven't posted for 5 whole days! 2 Of my little princess competed in the county pageant and both won crowns, so they both get to compete in the state pageant (I'm feeling pretty proud of my little princesses!). I have almost 3 more months before the craziness starts again. I hope I survive!

Back to the brownies (or on to the brownies)..... The name says it all. These are the most amazing brownies. Ever! Amazing fudgy brownies topped with an amazing chocolate satin glaze. Perfect. Amazing. Mmmmmm

If you like chocolate....I mean really like chocolate.....Well, maybe love chocolate....Okay, really love chocolate.....These brownies are for you!

Linked on Show Me What Ya Got 15, It's a Keeper Thursday, This Weeks Cravings and Sweets for a Saturday #10.


I think I just gained 5 pounds looking at that picture! If I only had self control......

Amazing Brownies

1 cup butter, melted
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Wisk together flour, cocoa powder and salt - set aside. Stir together butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and stir until combined. Add flour mixture and stir just until incorporated. Pour into a greased 7"x11" baking dish. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted 1 inch from the edge comes out clean (may have a few crumbs on it). Do not over bake.

The key to brownies is to NOT over mix. Mix everything by hand for the best results.

Chocolate Satin Glaze

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon corn syrup
1 cup powdered sugar

Place all ingredients except powdered sugar in a small sauce pan. Heat over medium low heat stirring constantly until melted. Remove from heat and stir in powdered sugar until smooth (sifting before will make it smoother). Pour over brownies.
